I ran a carfax on the 98 Dynasty we just bought for peace of mind. I paid the $34 for a month of use. It showed all the owners who previously owned it and all the other items carfax checks. Got a clean report.

Welcome, glad to meet you!

Quite often RV incidents are not reported so that Carfax can find them.

Carfax has no required reporting so they don't get everything, especially with RV's and their "guarantee" is that you get the cost of the Carfax back but are still stuck with the vehicle you bought.

That was a great car-fax! I for one do not have much time for car-fax after a learning experience with what/how things are reported

If you're already buying it, it's too late for CARFAX!

Carfax is just a waste of money . Very little if anything gets reported to them . They check state records for previous owners , state inspections . Channel 5 in Boston did a report on them and came up with same inclusion, a waste of money .
